Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.
Varietals: Pinot Noir
Appearance: Bright crimson
Vines: Fruit for this wine was sourced from the Yarra Yering planting of Pinot Noir, containing some of the oldest vines of their type in the Yarra Valley. A mixed planting of 4 clones was undertaken in 1969, then followed up with replication in 1981 (top of the slope) & 1984 (bottom of the slope).
Cellaring: Pinot noir is such an enjoyable young wine, if you can keep yourself away for up to 10 years under suitable cellaring conditions you will be rewarded.
Vintage 2017: A late start to harvest due to good rainfall and a cool to mild summer without any heat spikes to advance ripeness. Picking lasted 10 weeks at a leisurely pace delivering grapes with beautiful flavour development coupled and good acid retention.
Analysis: ALC: 13.5%
